How to Read an Object (Plymouth College of Art)

This article was written 5 years ago.

In August 2019, Plymouth College of Art invited Katie Treggiden to give a lecture entitled ‘How to read an object’ and host a workshop on the same theme, arming Masters students with the skills to derive knowledge from close visual and material observation of objects that had been designed and made by others, as well the confidence to articulately describe their own work.

It was a fascinating lecture, very thought-provoking and an object lesson in how to research in the depth and level of insight our students should be aiming for,’ said Vicky Sykes. ‘Delighted to take part … An insightful experience to reflect upon,’ said Sue Lewry.
